You can buy Tiagra anywhere but I chose Vanilla Bikes however because their groupset builder offered more options than the likes to Wiggle et al. Groupset arrived in the stated delivery period but when it did I realised that by being a total numpty I had ordered the wrong front mech for my frame, not a problem the team at Vanilla were really helpful in switching it for the correct one and I was on the road in time for the weekend!
First time customer but will definitely be shopping with these guys again!
I am happy I have good experience with them.
Bought the Tiagra as I wanted to update/upgrade the 5 year old Sora/Aftermarket components on my bike and I wanted the challenge of fitting a groupset myself.
Vanilla Bikes had a great deal on for the whole set + the option to customise every component was absolutely perfect. There was quite a delay in receiving the parts, but customer services were good at setting out what the issue was & option to cancel.
So far, nothing's fallen off the bike. The groupset performs nicely (nothing like a fresh drivetrain to make you "feel" faster, even if the speeds the same). I've ridden the groupset for about 200km & apart from some minor tweaks, everything's running smoothly:
Crankset and BB are sturdy.
Cassette & chain working nicely.
Rear derailleur needed barely any set-up
Front derailleur requires a lot of tension on the cable, but working fine.
Brakes provide surprisingly good feedback
Shifters are excellent, so far. The most noticeable change from my previous set up.
For the price, would definitely recommend.
All parts delivered as expected but a little longer delivery time than expected.
Quick responses when questions were asked.
Absolutely recommendable :-)
I got what I ordered and it is perfect but after a battle. When ordering it was started in stock to be told after 2 weeks they were waiting for an order. Got promised 2 more delivery dates and this were not met either. I would be very slow to use Vanilla bikes again
